Song Description

True stories from my life playing in bars. There's another bunch of verses too.

Broadjam Top 10 Lists this song is on:
Top 10 ListRank

Ain't It funny after 3 or 4 drinks
We all get the courage to say what we think
I've been a bar stool witness to so many things.
Hanging out in Barland.

Sally and her date were dancing
Spinning and getting plastered
He was showing off and swinging her faster and faster
Sally lost her front teeth on the end of my telecaster
Hanging out in Barland.

Tommy's poor liver couldn't take it anymore
He almost checked out on us a month or so before
But Tommy fought back and now he's strapped with those medical bills
We're all here to help him raise some cash, feeling blessed that he's here still.
Hanging out in Barland.

It's a sunny place for shady people at the Eldorado Cafe
At the base of the Red Lady, Oh Be Joyful let us pray
I was there the night John Lennon died
A Monday night football game
I drank so much I saw Ringo make the winning play
Hanging out in Barland.

On the night of the bomb scare, someone heard someone say
They left a little something to blow us all away
And when they vacated the building we took the Sunday Jams outside
Held a bomb scare revival for all the passersby
Hanging out in Barland

Sunshine took her top off and danced upon the floor
Some of the other ladies joined her and they put on a hell of a show
And I simply remember my favorite things then I don't feel so bad
Hanging out in Barland.

there are thousands more stories in a thousand other bars
Thousands of winners and losers showing off their scars
And I've met so many dear friends who've opened up my heart
Hanging out in Barland
Hanging out in Barland!
